  • Hey all,
    I live right by Taffee Park in Clinton Hill Brooklyn which has a hardscape soccer field. My roommate and I use the space and the neighboring handball court to throw around and I wanted to extend an invitation to those in the area who want to come around. If there is enough interest (4-8 people) we can throw together some make-shift rules and use some garbage cans as goals (unless , of course, we can get two goalies and two goals). It can't be an "official" event because the park is technically closed since Sandy hit, even though there is absolutely no damage. I know it is still a bit cold but I was out there the past three days without problem. Thoughts?

    I haven't played since high school, but I'd love to pick up a stick again if it's pretty casual.

    sounds like a dope idea

    I'm glad to see responses! I'm usually out throwing around by 5:30-6:00 so there is a high probability to find me there any weekday until ~7:30. That said, I'll make sure to be there every Monday and Thursday by 6:30 the latest for regularity starting today. Hope to see people there.

    Update on the space: it appears that the park is still officially closed. People of the neighborhood are regularly cutting the chain but the cops typically chain it back up within a few days. If the entry to the handball court on Myrtle is locked up, there is a short fence along Taaffe that is easily jumped. I keep calling 311 and asking why it is closed without any clear response. More to come.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
